Norwegian Star

7 Night Mexican Riviera (Los Angeles Roundtrip)

Sail date: December 15, 2017

Ship: Norwegian Star

Cabin number: GTY

Traveled as: Singles/Friends

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Review summary

My cabin was assigned towards the front of the ship apparently directly above the ships anchor hence when we docked (which was usually between 6:30-7:30am) the loud rumbling and cabin shaking occurred and after a late evening out was externally unwelcome and my cabin rear wall must had been adjoining either the mechanical room or locker room because I would hear clanking of tools and/or an occasional load thunk and voices. In summary, had I known this would be the case, I would had saved my monies and traveled with another cruise line. I did ask for a room change the very next day but unfortunately they were all somos out. On the 3rd day, I elected to sleep in my friends cabin on the floor for the duration of the trip.
